New Beer Friday 9/20/13

Avenues Proper's Sam Dogger Lager – (Zwickel) Helles Lager: Named for the Connelly family golden retriever Sam. Sam Dogger Lager is dry, crisp, with a pilsner malt body and just enough German Hallertauer hops to balance, notes of pear, cereal grains, and creamy lager yeast. “Zwickel” means “unfiltered” some cloudiness is appropriate. @Avenues Proper

For Firkin Friday at the Bayou, Hoppers Brewmaster & Secret Agent, Donovan Steele is presenting his Missionary Lager. Two companions, Elder Berry and Elder Flowers baptized in a Firkin full of the unfiltered GABF Bronze 2012 medal winning Bohemian-style Pilsener. He also has Stein Knocker Lager on tap at Hoppers.

Many of you have been asking about the status of the New Belgium beers. I'm hearing Tues or Wed next week. The DABC works at a "unique" pace and that should say it all.

Prost!

That means that Fat Tire, Ranger and Shift have been sitting on the DABC loading dock for about two weeks. Enjoy!

Thank you for independent distributors or that would true! But New Belguim should have gotten ball rolling earlier.
